P ~ Q ~ R
Staffordshire England c. 1850
This 3" high x 3 " wide childrens mug excluding the applied handle with acanthus style leaf terminals is transfer printed in luscious red. The mug has a turned base and a pearlware glaze.
The letters P ~ Q ~ R are transfer printed near the top of the mug with a whimsical scene of a very young gentleman parading in front of two young maidens.
Condition is EXCELLENT, clean shiny and bright, tiny stilt marks.
Mugs like these were given as gifts to children on special occasions and were used as educational tools, as well. A lovely addition to your ABC collection.
